My wife and I stayed at the hotel between the 12th and the 22nd of September 2012. Firstly I would like to thank the staff for all their help helping us to arrange a return flight as we had to return home early unexpectedly. During our stay we found the staff to be polite and helpfiul throughout our time in the hotel and we had no issues with the service.
The hotel is rated two stars so we were not expecting anything more and were happy with this. The room was cleaned and beds made each day, the air condition was free which was a bonus and once we realised that the door to the balcony had to be closed before it worked, we found it worked well.( this may be worth remembering!). The shower worked well and was hot enough in the evening but as the water is heated throughout the day from the sun it's worth remembering there would be a shortage of hot water in the morning.
The breakfast was traditional Turkish but they would cook omelette, scrambled and fried eggs on request at no extra charge. The snack and main meal menu had a good choice and of a good quality and reasonably priced.
The entertainment was varied with traditional Turkish evenings consisting of belly dancing etc as well as bingo. Pool tables and table tennis are also available to use free of charge.
The swimming pool was a good size and clean and the second pool was also,and had two water slides. There was an additional smaller pool with a play slide for small children. There were plenty of sun beds available around the swimming pools to use and the bar and amenities were close by.
The bar had a good choice of drinks and reasonbly priced with good measures of 'Raki' and other spirits. It stayed open late as you would expect so this could create some noise for people wanting an early night. Unfortunately some people were noisy when returning to their rooms late in the early hours, but you can't blame the hotel for that! We went later in the season expecting there to be less children as they would of returned to school, but there were some noisy ones up late at night!
Overall the hotel was average and as we only paid £325 each for our two week holiday we can't complain!
